Referrals are out! Get the calculator ...

So the news is out. October 13 is the cut off date. I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry - or do both as I check out all the cute babies on the lucky blogs. 16 days of referrals. I cannot help but calculate how many more days are left for us to wait. From October 13 to November 7 is 25 days ... 25 looooonnnnng days. Ok, so lets do a bit of predicting .... if the CCAA does another 16 days next month then we'll be at October 29. Then, if the CCAA can do at least 9 days then we're in!!! So I am thinking a referral at the beginning of April!

Anyone know how Chinese New year affects referrals??? Does it delay everything a week??!

I was hoping for a bigger batch as the CCAA was close for a week in there. I don't know about the CNY and how that affects things...

WOW - you must just be itching to go to China!!

You are so close!!!

I am thrilled over the updated CCAA website, just nice to know we are out of the review room!

I cant remember in the CNY had an affect on the amount of referrals released....I am going to try and look back and see if it did.

I'd like to think that CCAA are going to switch back to "end of month" referrals rather than begining of the month - so... maybe a March referral?!!! Friends of mine are logged in on 11 Nov - right on the cusp of the 15 day referrals! I SO hope they get in on the same lot of referrals as you!

Hi - your fellow Nov 7 LIDER here.
I love your prediction. Its my best case scenario. However I have a horrible idea they'll only get to the 4th of Nov..leaving us on the cusp!
But its going to be fun waiting!
Wouldn't it be great (but totally not like them) to send an early batch before CNY.

Congratulations to them. Thanks for coming by my blog and your kind words!
Let's hope very soon it is your turn to travel to China.
Always happy to find another Canadians blog!!!

Melissa said...

ohhhhhh, you're so close!!!!!

I like your thinking ... we are the 10th and are thinking we are on the cusp of something ... we are thinking more likely mid April or even into May ... yuck! But as you know ... your 3 days could make all the difference ............ let's hope for big batches from now on in!

It's exciting to be able to calculate an end date to this wild journey. That's wonderful news.

Whooo-hoooo!!

Seems like it's been FORVER that I've been following your journey!!! It's sooo cool that it's just around the corner now and things are going to be starting to get VERY exciting VERY soon!!!

I'd like to believe the same thing Lee Anne is saying. March would be better! It is getting close!!

The PINK room is sooooo adorable! Love the stripes and the rug! We were delayed a couple of weeks in our travel because of Chinese New Year, but I'm not sure about referrals. I would think so, because they pretty much such down everything in order to celebrate. Sorry, I know you didn't want to hear that. The bright side is that you should be getting your baby soon!!!!

I think April is a darn good guess. You are SOOOOOO close!
